I personally like having slides. It is my understanding that the design life of slides is 1,000 cycles.

I have had problems with seals, controls, rollers, and the umbilical cords.

Stuff happens
I think you are probably right about not being able to find a new A without them. That is why I have opened my search to an older CC or foretravel. Just wondering where you got the stats on 1,000 cycles.Sorry to hear about your troubles on your new MH

1,000 cycles came from an rv salesman.

I can imagine that some owners might get over 10,000 cycles?

Last coach I had one that had a rather stubborn leak. Current coach is almost two years old and has been in the shop out of warranty for an "adjustment". I feel like I have had it easy compared to other stories I have heard. Regardless we are willing to take the bad with the good. I doubt we would still be RVing without slides.

Full wall slide on one side and normal slides on other side. Never had a single issue. Just need to make sure it's relatively level and the area is clear before putting them in or out!

I had a 2007 Monaco LaPalma. Had to replace slide toppers due to age. No other issues.

Our Tradewinds is a 2000 with PowerGear electric slides, never had any trouble with the large front slide, the rear slide is small just the wardrobe and has a one sided set up, When it is cold something I have to give it a push by hand the help it out but never a problem bring it in or any other problems.
Non of my slide have any plumbing in them.

I was expecting more conversation on this subject. So from few responses, I take it as a non-issue. Maybe a mountain out of a molehill. or Since 99% maybe 100% of all new A's have slides there is no choice. Thanks again.

There are a few models that have "known" challenges with slides. Do a search of the forums and you will begin to see the pattern of slide issues. Slides for most coaches seem to be pretty dependable.
